U.S Rep. Mike Conaway (Texas-R) has introduced the Second Chance at Life Act, which requires women to be informed that if they take the first of the two-pill combination for an abortion, but change their mind, the abortion can be reversed under certain conditions.

Ingrid Duran of the National Right to Life Committee was asked by OneNewsNow if abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood inform women.

“No, they are not. Actually they are definitely opposed to these types of measures,” she responds. “And it doesn't really sound like a pro-choice position to have because this type of information especially has the potential to save so many lives if a woman chooses to change her mind."

The only time women are informed of the reversal policy, Duran advises, is in states with “women's right to know” laws.

Even if the bill fails in the Democrat-led House, the pro-life activist says the effort will bear fruit by educating the public.

“A lot of people are not aware,” she says, “that you can possibly reverse the intended effects of the chemical abortion.

More than 500 babies have been saved so far with the reversal process.
